I think one of the things I love most about Annabelle is how very transparent she is. If she's happy, excited or silly, this is the way she looks. It's all or nothing with her, and she doesn't hold back. You can read her like a book. When she smiles, her eyes light up, her nose crinkles, and every single pearly white is visible. I simply can't get enough of this and delight in watching her in her moments of happiness. Of course, it works the other way around, and she's an "all or nothing" kind of girl when she's upset as well. But that's ok-- she's passionate, she's temperamental, she's transparent. These are the qualities that help to make her the wonderful little person she is, and it is my prayer that as time and training goes on she will learn how to use these traits to bless others around her and glorify God.
Just look at that happy, silly, dear little face. Can you help but smile too?
